dial down the saturation, then play with color balance.

I don't have a Fliker account, so can't look at your samples.

Re: Color Tone & Color Correction

I can only see the final site as I don't have a flicker account either, it looks a bit like it is a dark sepia overlay added to the picture and then the opacity is dropped to allow more colour through, maybe even a gradient map

Re: Color Tone & Color Correction

Hi Ha,
i been watching Andres Hernandez 's flikr (lol his one of my flickr's contact) and about the photography , i think the mood is created by the lighting ;well i guess u already know that, but technically u can achieve that by shooting outdoor with a good studio flash and a neutral filter ND8 for the best.
The ND filter will desaturate the colors, and darken the background and hopefully the subject will be correctly exposed.
then surely some tweakings under photoshop, but there's experts here who'll help u with that part. hope this help.

Re: Color Tone & Color Correction

I think it's done with only adding flash and taking up th f/stop! let's from 4 to 16/18 or something close to that! It's experiment thing with the f/stop try it and you will see...The light source must be close to the subject...therefor everything around the light source will be dark and moody, but the face will get a white-skin-desaturated look...

you're right koax, but if u want a short DOF, and that nice bokeh on background, u'll never get that at f8 or 16 lol. not even with that oh so pretty lens but a liiittle expensive 400/600 mm...
